JOHN JOSEPH BRILL RELEASES NEW SINGLE ‘DAMN IT ALL’

London / Nashville based songwriter John Joseph Brill shares his newest single and the title track of his upcoming EP, Damn It All. 

A towering physical presence with a brooding baritone, a thinking man’s brute, West London’s tender beast; John Joseph Brill is perhaps a surprising source of the dark and tender lyricism found in his new single, ‘Oil in The Water,’ which precedes a new EP, due for release in spring 2019. 

2018 was a year of transition for Brill, creatively, personally and professionally. A stalwart of the West London music scene, he’s toured extensively around the UK and Europe with Daughter and Bear’s Den and has carved himself a niche as an in-demand lyricist and songwriter for others. In the summer of this year, in pursuit of new inspirations and a different set of distractions he decamped to Nashville to write and record the songs that make up this new body of work. Recorded over a sweaty few weeks in Nashville’s legendary House of Blues studios, the new songs reveal a more ambitious, confident and cocksure side to Brill, while still maintaining a deep undercurrent of melancholy and barely- tempered aggression. 

Speaking about Damn It All, Brill describes the track as “a break up song in essence. A series of memories, each a bad decision, motivated by the fear of letting go of someone. At it’s most elemental it’s about that moment where faced with an opportunity to be good to yourself you say ‘ah sod it!’ and do the wrong thing anyway.”
